Internships and Opportunities

Middle East Institute - Deadline: November 15

Availble to: any students or recent graduates who are looking for spring internships

"MEI offers an array of internship opportunities that engage a wide range of professional interests and talents. As a small organization, interns are integral to and deeply involved in MEI's work, which often allows them to see the tangible outcomes of their work over the internship term.

In the Publications Department, interns acquire a broad knowledge of current Middle East scholarship and current events, while also learning about in-house publishing and the daily management of The Middle East Journal. Interns in the Development Department share responsibility for identifying potential individual, foundation, and corporate donors, and cultivating MEI's existing relationships. Programs Department interns conduct research and produce backgrounders on potential event topics, promote and run MEI's policy events and conferences, liaise with the policy community, and monitor the press. There are also opportunities for advanced students - particularly those highly proficient in Arabic - to work as Research Assistants for our scholars.   Although our internships are unpaid, MEI works to ensure that its interns are compensated for their contributions. We offer a free language class, a SmarTrip card reloaded with $100 each month, a year-long online subscription to The Middle East Journal, and a series of talks, the Intern Development Series, exclusively dedicated to advancing our interns' professional lives and their knowledge of the region."
